Live from the Kremlin


Assumption Cathedral, Monastary of St. Sergius, Zagorsk, Russia


I went to Russia in May, 1995, as part of a group of 5 musicians and 16 clog dancers to perform in various cities and towns. I won't get into the breakdown of our "performance tour" and the organization thereof, but suffice to say things are not always as they seem... For their part the Russian people were extremely friendly and appreciative of our presence and did everything they could to make us feel welcome and well taken care of. We were the first Americans to visit two places we performed: the town of Usman and a collective farm named Vastinky. At times it was a bit overwhelming as the people are very curious of America and Americans and wanted to practice their English at every opportunity. They were surprised and slightly confused that we didn't speak Russian, as English is taught extensively in Russian schools. We didn't have a lot of free time to explore and I made pictures when I could. I would welcome the opportunity to return and perform again with a different US organizer.
